justification: pywebkitgtk cross-compiling for win32, using mingw32.
i'm not paying for microsoft license fees, i'm not paying for a
computer capable of running msvc, i'm not paying for the bandwidth
to download msvc and/or set it up.
much happier with mingw32, but mingw32 runs like an absolute dog
under wine - and often wine_server hangs. (at least a 20x performance
hit for running msys and mingw32 under wine).
so... that leaves cross-compiling.
i need the development libraries from python 2.5 in order to create
a windows version of pywebkitgtk.
